Description

Given an estimated model and a prior density function, compute the marginal reliability (Thissen and Wainer, 2001). This is only available for unidimensional tests.

Usage

1

Arguments

mod

an object of class 'SingleGroupClass'

density

a density function to use for integration. Default assumes the latent traits are from a normal (Gaussian) distribution

...

additional arguments passed to the density function
